The new Nexus 7 Tablet has got some killer hardware coupled with a respectable software, i.e. Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, which is already receiving positive reviews.
While its main competitors will be either Amazon Kindle Fire or Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0, we think that it has enough skills to take on even the best in tablet business.
Does it succeed? let’s find out:

I’ll mention it again that Ipad 3 and Transformer Prime aren’t Google Nexus 7’s main competitors, but still thanks to its great hardware, it can compete with those too in some, if not all categories.
